Parents and guardians will be returning to the classroom at John Gray High School on the evening of Thursday, 18 April.
This will be no ordinary lesson though. This will be for a special workshop organised by Feed Our Future, the nonprofit organisation that works to fund school lunches for the neediest children in Cayman.
This will be the pilot workshop in a series, that Feed Our Future plans to deliver, in keeping their objective to expand their reach and help empower families and children through instruction in life skills.
“This first workshop is intended to help participants learn to stretch their food budgets and use nutritional information to make healthier food choices and cook delicious, affordable meals at home,” says Stacey VanDevelde, chairwoman of Feed Our Future.
Local “celebrity chef” and volunteer Sean Collins and community dietician Bethany Smith, will deliver the class along with other volunteers, and both will be available to answer any questions participants may have.
On the menu for the first workshop is a meatloaf (which will use lean beef and vegetables) accompanied by mashed potatoes and a side of steamed vegetables.
The workshop is open to parents or guardians of Feed Our Future sponsored children. It’s designed to be an interactive class and participants will assist in preparing the meal, and will also be able to take it home the prepared meal, along with a small supply of nonperishable food items.
The event is free of charge, but spaces are limited, so reserve yours now.
